I will continue you visit tipb as they are always quick to post new stories and offer their opinion. I am disappointed by the amount of regurgitated iPad 3 stories over the past few months with new info few and far between.
What really bothers me was postering by tipb's writers and moderators on the certainty of the iPad 3 release in order to justify the coverage. I knew the day tipb would have to recant their claims was coming soon, I kept that in mind and made sure to call those people out the time came.
I know I sound like a hater but browse the forums, I just read a post from Garz saying the 'iPad is coming this fall whether you like it or not.'
Jeremy says it again and again following it up by 'follow me on twitter'
You've got to be kidding me
Rene I don't have to much beef with, I just feel he should be more forthcoming and transparent with his reporting.

I never questioned the info regarding his source concerning dates or what's being worked on. Just the reasoning and certainty of a fall ipad release.
What's rubbed me the wrong way in this thread is basically how unfriendly it got. If you disagreed and offered your own reasons, you got hit quickly by others. "I guess you'll still be trying to convince yourself in October while we're playing with ipad 3's" LOL I guess not.
"No, your reasons are wrong..my source said its because of this and this. These are the real reasons. Anything else is pure garbage"
And this of course is nonsense. Especially the statement that Verizon caused Apple to release the ipad 2 and caused the iphone 5 to be launched in the fall. Apple would never let another company dictate it's strategy. The source may know dates or what is being worked on but I would question if he knows much else.
If you understand anything about apple, it's that Apple prefers being in control. That its strategy is marketing driven. That software trumps hardware.
My first instinct upon hearing the iphone would launch in the fall is that it totally had to do with iOS 5. (or iCloud or perhaps both). This has not changed. What makes sense to me is that knowing this, it provided Apple an opportunity to give Verizon an iphone even earlier than intended and still have time for a white iphone launch. It also provides an opportunity to move to a better release time..closer to the holiday season especially with decreasing ipod sales currently taking that prime slot.
The ipad 3 had legs because iOS 5 is a huge marketing opportunity. But it's not essential yet (to launch an ipad around it) because the retina screen still figures to be a huge draw on its own. The ipad 2 is selling lights out. And Apple has enough to market this fall while leaving something for later.
No offense. But i'd rather speculate based on apple's history which as usual, proved to be more useful and accurate. Not based on what some nameless source has to say or spins things.

*and just to be clear about this threads closing - no point of going back and forth between those who don't believe what I've posted and those who do. Really nothing more to discuss.
